Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've just moved to Cairo. Only looking for friends.
I'm a huge geek and I love to read. I work a lot and love my job.
I've lived in 9 countries and I'm the third culture kid product of
a Greek and a Dane. I just started my new job in Cairo. I like to
think about weird things, like , what would happen if our planet
was knocked out of orbit and shot into space?
I used to be a club rat, but now I'd rather go to gigs or go bar
hopping. Sometimes I shut the place down and sometimes I leave
early because sleep is amazing. When I get bored I like to make
things. One day after work I took a pallet apart and made a bench.
I make my own herb planters out of cement. I love Martha
I think fashion, photography and art are cool. I used to photograph
fashion shows and gigs, but ultimately the free champagne, beer and
backstage passes left me feeling pretty empty. Now I take pictures
of people with interesting stories and interesting faces. I used to
turn my little studio apartment in Madrid into a dark room on
nights when there isn't much moonlight. I'm working on my darkroom
situation here in Cairo.
I know two jokes and one of them is 10 minutes long. I love to tell
stories and if I've been drinking I will tell you about the wise
old man and his magic bag. It's mostly true.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm teaching physics at a British school, working on a few projects
there and considering starting my masters.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking and geeking out over obscure/cool stuff
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My cheeks/face go red when I get nervous
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Camus, Dostoyevsky and the classics, but some of the new stuff is
cool too. Right now I really like Jon Ronson. I like finding pulp
sci fi books from the 50's or anything a little weird. Oh and I
went through a huge Chuck Palaniuk phase. Is that a guilty
pleasure? Fuck it. I like him.
I watch a lot of independent films and went through a French new
wave phase, but I watch everything. Really. Anything.
I don't normally watch tv, but when I do I'll watch a season in a
week. I like Curb your Enthusiasm, Portlandia, Arrested
Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Girls.
I'm into deep/tech house, minimal techno and summer mixes. I mostly
listen to super chill music, like, anything from Majestic Casual.
Hip Hop and R&B (a la The Weeknd, Frank Ocean or Kid Cudi to
name a few) can be really cool and I like dub, reggae and jamaican
dancehall. Whenever I'm with friends and we don't know what to do
we listen to Major Lazer. Sometimes I get into a mood and listen to
jazz or Tom Waits. I'm pretty sure that's what I'll be listening to
when I'm old and settled down.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A camera and film
Books, lots of books
Really nice wine, like the stuff Greek Orthodox monks make for the
Sitting in the sun
Chill music for those sleepy serotonin depleted days
Travel, either really luxurious or really cheap
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When you look into a carpet or some patterned image and it swirls
and changes shape. What is that? I heard that it's a sign of brain
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I usually work really late on Friday, but I'm almost always out and
about after that
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I don't recycle. Like, I just throw it away.. in the
garbage. I know, it's a really shitty thing to do. I do mostly
recycle though. I even have my own compost.
This doesn't really apply since moving to Cairo. The garbage
situation is totally bizarre here.
